AMD is rolling out a new driver update for its Radeon RX GPUs that fixes an infamous black screen issue with its GPUs, for which the brand has gained quite some notoriety. The new graphics driver has the version 22.10.3 and fixes a major issue with Radeon cards on the Windows 11 22H2 update.
The latest gen Radeon RX 6000 series Navi (RDNA 2) GPUs had the black screen issue, and AMD has finally rolled out a fix for it. Furthermore, the driver update also optimises Radeon GPUs for the latest titles including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, variable rate shading in Dying Light 2, and more. It also fixes issues like Elite Dangerous crashing on Radeon RX 6000 cards, black screen issue during driver update, lower frame rates in Gotham Knights, and more.
There are still a few known issues though. For instance, World of Warship may have prediction lines missing in the latest Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs. GPU utilisation may also be stuck at 100% in Radeon performance metrics even after closing some games on products like the Radeon 750, and more. The 100% usage bug is plaguing a few Nvidia GPUs of late.
